You’ve been sworn in or you’ve been a public official for a while…you’ve done your Brown Act training but how do make yourself as effective a leader as possible? San Mateo County Community College District’s Office of Community, Continuing & Corporate Education is launching a new certificate program, Leadership for Public Trust (LPT) in 2018 to equip potential, emerging, and experienced public leaders for confident public leadership – leading to better government, effective policymaking, vibrant communities, and improved public trust. With an interactive two-day format featuring insights and skills development from expert guest speakers, LPT Fellows engage in five key areas of public leadership development: Leading with Integrity, Leading in the Community, Leading on the Record, Leading Online; and Leading in Crisis.
LPT Fellows enjoy a safe, thoughtful learning environment while gaining the confidence and skills needed to develop a personal leadership theory and practice framework and a trusted and authentic public presence in the community, in official public settings, online and when dealing with a crisis. LPT Fellows also receive the Leadership for Public Trust Best Practices Guide, a program certificate upon completion, and opportunities to engage in a series of continuing education, networking and mentoring opportunities.
